Just to say hi, how are you doing! I'm a computer repair technician at ECU, and am trying this out since I do like having 2nd opinions and am also very paranoid about what I use on my computer and how it runs. I am running Windows Vista Ultimate 64 bit, and am using a HP Pavillion dv6936 laptop, 4GB of RAM, 2.0 Ghz dual core, and an Nvidia 8400M GS video card. I'm using vista for the first time and considering my hardware its not that bad in my own opinion, but I can't say I'm not waiting to try Windows 7, nice to meet you everyone!!

Thanks Garmanma!! I hope to help some other people in here too so we'll see what happens, oh ya, quick question, does the windows 7 beta run well in VMware or is it not advised? I got the beta but haven't tried installing it yet.

Hello, I am from New Zealand. I have Vista 64 bit, 4 GB ram etc. I trained as an IT Technician and Networking administrator last year. It is summer here and from my computer desk I can see out to the ocean, three islands, a beach with people swimming, a view of the city, a boat marina. There is a cruise liner coming in a container ship going out to sea, many yachts and speed boats. A wonderful place. :thumbsup:
